This trip was a taste of Paris that really left us wanting more! Our tour guide Michael did a great job of showing us all the landmarks. He also provided us with many helpful tips, from what side of the boat to sit on for great pictures, to warning us about taking the stairs down the Eiffel Tower
Great way to see Paris in a day. Tour was well-organized and our bus driver was fantastic. Our tour guide was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She gave us great tips on how to make the most of each site we visited.
Easy pace and great guide
Some free time
If you only have a day to see Paris, this is a great way to do it. Our guide, Michael, was knowledgeable, helpful, and a good drive to boot! I was lucky as there were only 6 of us in the morning, and 3 in the afternoon, so it felt like having a personal guide. The pace, as you can imagine, is quite busy, with the Eiffel Tower, Seine River Cruise, Musee d'Orsay on a Tuesday, the Louvre the other days, and a highlights ride through Paris. But, you definitely get the sampler platter of the city that way! Michael also had some good suggestions re. places to visit in the short time we had on our own. The Gosselin Patiserrie he suggested was fantastic!
Easy booking and it was very seamless meeting the tour guide in Paris. Highly recommend this tour!
Guide didn't go with us to Eiffel Tower so I don't know what you see from the top and didn't go inside Louvre. But River Cruise was very interesting.
We were so excited for this tour, but unfortunately things didn't go as planned. In the days leading up to the tour, Paris experienced massive flooding. Due to the flooding, the art in the Louvre had to be evacuated and the Louvre was closed. The high water levels in the Seine also meant that the river cruise wouldn't be possible.
Although none of this was the fault of the tour operators, they handled it gracefully. Faced with a group of disappointed tourists, they did everything they could to ensure that we still had a memorable and enjoyable time in Paris. Since we had extra time to spare, we were driven around different areas and able to see many sights such as Moulin Rogue and the Arc de Triomphe. We then did the Eiffel Tower portion of the tour, and were given enough time to wander around the neighborhood or grab a bite to eat. To make up for the parts of the tour that we missed, we were then taken to Notre Dame Cathedral and given free time on our own. The location was ideal, as it allowed for either touring the cathedral, exploring the Latin Quarter, or walking along the Seine.
My husband and I decided we were content with seeing Notre Dame from the outside and chose to spend our time in the Latin Quarter and then taking a walk along the Seine. We had a great time and didn't feel disappointed in the tour despite the change in plans. Our tour guide was very nice and we appreciated everything he did to make the day enjoyable for everyone. We would definitely consider doing this tour again on a return trip to Paris so that we could experience the parts of the tour that we missed.
Awesome is one word to describe this one day tour. This tour covered most of Paris attractions in one day. Keep in mind that if you are including Louvre museum , its not enough time however we were able to cover one section completely. Tour guide Mike was awesome. The transport and the coordination were outstanding. Highly recommend if you are tight on time.
Great way to see Paris in one day from London. Wish that viator could add a visit to Notre Dame Cathedral to this tour. The Eiffel Tower and Louvre were the best part of the trip.
There were only 4 of us on a huge tour bus. We received individual attention from the guide and driver as if it were a private tour. The Eurostar experience was underwhelming but what a great way to travel between 2 great cities.
